Summary

During Meiosis, diploid cells undergo two cell divisions that result in haploid cells. In meiosis I, homologous chromosomes pair up
along the cell equator and are divided into separate cells. In meiosis II, sister chromatids are divided into separate cells, making a total
of four haploid cells that are genetically unique.
